|Did you know that in the 1881 UK census there were 360 people with the Brockie surname? In that year Brockie was ranked number 3219 for popularity in the UK.|
Ellie was born with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. Spina Bifida is where the spine and spinal cord don't develop properly in the womb, causing a gap in the spine. This can cause a number of difficulties including weakness or paralysis of the legs. Many babies with Spina Bifida also develop Hydrocephalus which, as in Ellie's case, sometimes needs an operation to insert a tube that drains excess fluid from the brain.
Children like Ellie are supported by the Shine Charity who provide specialist advice and support for the children and their families. Shine relies on donations to do this essential work and, this year, Ellie's uncle Dave will be running in the London Marathon to raise money for Shine. Obviously, we realise that requesting complete strangers to donate money to the charity is a bit of an ask but, now that you've read this far, perhaps you would consider taking a little bit more of your time to make a small donation to this very worthy cause at Dave's JustGiving Page? Thank you!

"BROCKIE. Gilbert Broky was 'chantour' of Brechin, 1411 (REB., i, 32), Robert Broky, witness in Edinburgh, 1429 (REG., 336), Archibald Broky in Downe, 1581 (RHM., i, 124), Robert Brockie in Glengaim in sixteenth century, and the surname is found in Stitchill in 1684 as Brocky (Stitchill, p. 96). John Broikie, heir of William Broikie, lawful son of quondam William Broikie in Cartair, 1603 (Inquis. Tut., 29), and three of the name occur in Edinburgh after 1666 (Edinb. Man.). Marianus Brockie, a native of Edinburgh, was prior of the monastery at Ratisbon. His MS. collections for a Scottish Monastic-cm are now in the library of Blair's R. C. College near Aberdeen. John M. Brockie of King Edward served in the first Great War (Tuniff). Lower says that the family of Brockie is of Moray descent, and that the name is found in REM., in 1364, but I do not find it there. REM., p. 164 ( A. n. 1364) has mention of Bridanus Breach. Hardly from Bruchtie, Brugtie, or Brochtie in Forfar Retours (38, 71, 249, 380). These would give Broughty? "(The surnames of Scotland. George Fraser Black, 1866-1948)

Birth, Death and Marriage records are often the best method of making the links to the Brockie Genealogy that will form part of your family tree. Although records vary from country to country, they are normally the most formal record of a person's relations. From the sources below you will be able to find a birth record and, from that, a birth certificate can be ordered which lists the names of the mother and father, taking you back another generation in your tree. A marriage certificate may also list the names of the respective fathers of the bride and groom which may then help you to find them earlier in life on a census record enabling you to fill out more detail in the Brockie family tree.
